Central Indiana Nursing jobs without RN experience?Register Today!
- by SuperMeghan91 Oct 15, '12I'm planning on moving to Central Indiana (Noblesville or Carmel) after I graduate with my RN, but I'm concerned that I wouldn't be able to find a job! Every single job listing for RN's requires 1-2 years of experience. What is the job situation like in this area? Are new grads able to find new jobs, or are they leaving the area to support themselves?
- Oct 21, '12 by Arianna91As long as you can network and aren't afraid to call/email around, it's not hard. I graduated the end of this past July and many of my friends have nursing jobs. You can't be too picky though, unless you've got a few months and people on "the inside." Do you have your BSN or ASN? A lot of hospitals around here prefer BSN's, like most everyone else these days. Best of luck in your decisions and job search!!
- Oct 21, '12 by SuperMeghan91Thanks for your help. I'm going for my ASN, and I don't know many people in the area. I think I'll work here for a year or move to an area with more job opportunities for new grads.
- Oct 24, '12 by spider11My advice is to try and work in a healthcare facility BEFORE you graduate. A lot of times if you work as a SNE (student nurse extern), then you have a better chance of getting hired.
